    This is one of the worst schools in the State. There is no leadership. I don't feel my children are safe in this school because of total lack of discipline.

    Both of my girls went through the Windsor High School system and they finished in the top 10 of their classes. Very civic minded school emphasising scholastics community envolvement & volunteerism. The teachers were motivated & award winning! I couldn't have asked for more!

    Windsor High School has many fine qualities at heart but their unwinllingness to commit to hard decisions and actions greatly hinders it's ability to further it's success. The school's leaders would much rather talk about the ball game Windsor just won than about the its exigent drug usage problems. Windsor does not address issues by trying to remedy their core causes. Instead Windsor spends a lot of time--and even money in some cases--trying to wipe away symptoms of a problem. Windsor's teachers are great; there is no denying that. However underlying maladies often overshadow the teachers' impressive abilities. Change in the administration's lower levels has left the school in an even sadder state of affairs. With stories about cafateria ladies and so forth Windsor's pick for principal has not brought the school where it wanted to go. With an atmosphere comparible to prison Windsor can have a mediocre rating at best.
